Leon Bailey Scores Again For Aston Villa In 3-1 Win

Jamaican winger Leon Bailey continues his outstanding start to the season for Aston Villa after scoring his fourth goal in six games as Villa came back to beat Crystal Palace to move above them in the league table; they moved up to seventh.

In the first half, Villa was slow out of blocks, which was unusual for them, as they usually score in the first fifteen to twenty minutes of their home games, yet both teams cancelled each other out, and the first half ended 0-0.


Crystal Palace defended well on the occasions Villa looked threatening, and that was how they took the lead after winning back the ball and launching a counterattack, which Eduardo finished off for his fourth of the season.

Villa hit back late with an 87-minute equalizer after a brilliant individual effort from Duran, who scored the best goal on the day following his astute chest control; the Colombian forward then rifled an unstoppable shot to beat Crystal Palace goalkeeper.

Duran Reaction After Scoring

Douglas Luiz had a chance to give Villa the lead following a controversial penalty incident involving Villa forward Olie Watkins. The referee gave a penalty, and subsequently, he was instructed to look on VAR, but the referee stood by his initial decision; Luiz then stepped up and scored calmly to hand Villa the lead.

Leon Bailey, who came on as a substitute, sealed Villa’s win late in extra time after a well-composed finish at the back post by latching on to Diaby’s cross following one of his many mazy runs. Villa has now recorded their 10th straight win at home. Leon Bailey and Aston Villa will now shift their focus on their upcoming European match mid-week.
